Hi,

Ive just put together a new machine and I cant play any games on it because the graphics are too slow and jerky.

I just went on 3DMark and my score came up as 312 and when I was going through the process i was getting framrates of 0 and 1.

Heres the machines spec.

AMD X2 Dual Core 4200+
ASRock ALiveNF&G-HD with Integrated Geforce 7050 pv Series(NV44)
1GB DDR2 RAM
400w PSU
250GB Sata Harddisk

Im running Vista32 and I have the latest NVIDIA Drivers.

Surely I should be getting a score of more than 312.

Anyone got any ideas ?

Many thanks

Scott

I hate to bash ones hardware, however, your PC really has "no balls".... Your Video card (or should I say built in GPU) Is about as useful as an old ISA slot 32k 16 color video card when it comes to gaming. That GPU WAS NOT MADE FOR GAMING PERIOD;) . The main purpose for that GPU is 2D stuff and thats pretty much it. Sure is supports DX9.0C Hardware T&L, SM 3.0 (I think) etc.... but those are just for marketing hype for that class card.

Sorry Scott, but your Video Card, PSU, and Memory need some work. Integrated graphics are never great. You need a dedicated GPU to get a good score in any of the 3dmarks.

I know its a bad system and I know its not at all built for gaming but it shouldnt give one of the lowest 3dmark scores ever, something isnt right.

If thats 3d Mark 2006, then yeah, thats about all its going to get. :o

Really, integrated video is there to get you by and is usually only capable of running old-ish games slowly.

It'll work, but no matter how fast the rest of your system is, that video chip is still about 1\50th the speed of a high end graphics card.

3dmark is pointless for something like that. Try playing a game. You'd probably be surprised at how well some games will run on that chip.

I played HL2 just fine on a 32mb Geforce 2 MX200 PCI, and that is a hell of a lot slower than a 7050.

I agree with CaptNKILL. Try some games; integrated video is slow, but often you can play older games without any problems. If you want to play newer games, you definatly need an new video card.

3+ year old 3D games will be about what you can expect to run OK on that graphics chip. As mentioned, if you intend to play recent games on that rig at all, you need to get a dedicated card. Even a Geforce 8400/8500GT or Radeon 2400/2600 Pro card will be lots better than the integrated one.

why dont you just buy a video card? :confused:

if you were to buy a decent video card your machine would be fine.

I've actually seen Intel Extreme Graphics with higher scores... Ouch...

312 3DMark 06 from onboard Geforce 7050 is a bit faster than Geforce 5900XT and Radeon 9600 Pro back in 2002 and 2003 so Geforce 7050 will be good to play 3 to 5 years old games.

Hm you'd think the CPU score alone would make the score higher than that lol

When the GPU is the suck, new 3DMark's tank. I tried to run 3DMark 06 on my 5900 back when it first came out and it was horrifying. Of course when I went back and ran older versions, it clocked pretty good.

If there's one thing that a new version of 3DMark is good for, it's making everyones graphics card seem obsolete.
